With the 2012 BMW 6-Series Convertible already unveiled at Detroit, BMW needs to throw a bone to its markets in the far east, and will likely unveil the 2012 6-Series Coupe at the Shanghai Auto Show at the end of April.
Powertrains are likely to be identical to the 6-Series Convertible, though the extra rigidity should help the car drive a bit better. Make no mistake, this is still transportation for the plutocratic elite, and your local Z-list celebrity douchebag. That means they can get to the night club or country club with BMW’s 4.4L turbocharged V8 or a 3.0L turbocharged I6. And get away faster from the paparazzi or a disgruntled ex-wife.
